Syracuse, NY – On Tuesday, Dana Balter, Democratic candidate for Congress in NY-24, released the following statement on Rep. John Katko’s party-line vote to censure Chairman Adam Schiff:
“Rep. Katko’s vote to reprimand Chairman Schiff for doing his job and investigating the president—a job Katko has refused to do—is naked partisanship at its worst. This administration is attempting to cover up its crimes and it’s Congress’ job to bring the truth to light for the American people. Rep. Katko is not Donald Trump’s defense attorney, he’s NY-24’s representative and he repeatedly fails to do the right thing.”
Congressman Katko of 2016 said, “The law should be applied equally, regardless of political status.” Clearly Congressman Katko of 2019 doesn’t believe in that principle and is simply another partisan who puts his party over our country.
